Hey Jackeroo, download from BaiduPan was troubling me for almost 2 hours.

The following ZIP was compressed from the EFI 10.15.2 folder. Untested.

>Wifi, I'm going to buy the hardware, Any advice?
Thanks for your EFI. Stuck at boot screen several times but at last the installation was completed.

Still have no time for test, but about the WiFi/Bluetooth cards, Fenvi T919 (Broadcom BCM94360CD) works in my case (Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming).

Thank you! If you using a VPN, it will very soon download it, lol. I'm using a VPN to visit Youtube, Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc. from China. so I'm sorry for not considering this issue.

Not only the speed problem, NoneZip EFI also makes files size up to 63.5MB(197% larger), and it was too many troubles confusing me.

I needed to download BaiduNetdisk app (Baidu display some error messages in chinese about
"Download items was over 500 files limit. Needs VIP membership "
"Download Including folders, must install BaiduNetdisk app"
)

So, I signed up with my foreign mobile phone (few years ago it was forbidden), and in the first place for a foreign people, fortunately I happen to know chinese so I can deal with this issue.

But it's OK! Too many rules in this world... Don't concern yourself. I am fine! Thanks!!

I tried to upload the BaiduPan error messages screen shot png (in chinese) a few hours ago, but turn out it was against the rules of tonymacx86.com.

Got it, My iPad mini 5 is still with ios 12.3, so I haven't tested this, please try to solve it, Thank you
About SideCar you might wanna read this post. Mine is iMacPro 1,1. Might work with iMac 18,3 or iMac 19,1.

HandBrake is no stable in Catalina.
(HandBrake V1.3 don't work.HandBrake V1.2 can't add artwork to video files.)
So, I decided to stay on High Sierra(HFS+).
